Subject: Title Part...ally Del....ted
Newsreel clip from the days of the Berlin Airlift with serious soundtrack problems. It starts with German narration, which is bizarre because the title cards are in English. Then it suddenly switches to English narration for a few seconds, then the sound cuts out entirely. Then it switches to footage of a UN discussion of the Berlin situation. At first, this is silent, but then we get to hear a speech from an American delegate about the reasons for the airlift. Then it goes silent again, as we see one of the other delegates looking frustrated. I wish some of these newsreels had been better preservedââthis would have had a lot more historical value with a complete soundtrack.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.
